Christmas 2011 has seem more people than ever using their mobile phones to shop online. That in itself isn’t surprising - but what’s caught our eyes is the scale of the increase.

It says mobile devices accounted for 14.3% of all US online retail traffic on 25th November, up from 5.6% in 2010. Over two-thirds of that traffic was via Apple iPhones and iPads. Sales on mobile devices reached 9.8% of all online purchases, up from 3.2% year-on-year.
